The Hawai‘i Convention Center is recognizing National Breast Cancer Awareness Month this October with special lighting throughout the Lobby of the building from Oct. 16 – 31, 2020.
The pink LED lighting is designed to help raise awareness of the disease. It is estimated that more than 276,400 women and over 2,600 men will be diagnosed with new cases of invasive breast cancer in the U.S. this year.
“We are proud to recognize National Breast Cancer Awareness Month this October in honor of the many families who are touched each year by this disease,” said Teri Orton, general manager of the Hawai‘i Convention Center, managed by ASM Global. “It is critically important that patients receive the screening, access, treatment and support that they need.”
The Center has remained closed to the public since March following State of Hawai‘i COVID-19 pandemic restrictions. It is working with state agencies to provide space for important services such as unemployment claims processing, COVID-19 contact tracing, and vote counting. All public events previously scheduled during this time are either postponed or canceled.
The Center is also conducting improvements, repairs and upgrades throughout the building, allowing for the expedited completion of maintenance projects and the implementation of new safety protocols without disrupting meetings and events.
The health and safety of guests and employees are the Center’s top priority. The Center has developed safety guidelines and protocols in response to COVID-19, and continues to follow the guidance of public health officials.
